Cookbook Update: A Post of Food Photos and Sample Covers!

Posted July 25, 2017 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Blogging / 16 Comments

Howdy, folks! We’re back with another cookbook update. If you haven’t heard, I’m publishing a teatime cookbook of literary recipes with Skyhorse Publishing, and I’m wildly excited about it. Last month I gave a quick rundown of what we had put together, and today I’m going to be updating you guys on our progress. So here we go! ^.^

  • I’m on to the editing stage! At the time of my last update, I was working on the last round of recipe testing, making sure everything was just right. That’s pretty much done now (just a few loose ends to tie up), so I’m currently editing the manuscript and pictures. Here’s a taste of some of the photos you’ll see in the book:


  • We’re adding more teas! Originally the plan was to have 5 teas, but later on I had the idea of having one tea for every book featured  in the cookbook. I ran the idea by my editor, and she gave me the green light! Now there will be 22 awesome teas, including ones inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, Winnie the Pooh, and The Hobbit.
  • We have a cover! I shared a potential cover photo in my last post, and my editor recently sent me a sample of the front cover! I love it soooo much, you guys. It turned out even better than I pictured in my head. Here it is (!!!):

    It’s just a sample so it could change, but I think it’s a great starting point. It hits all the right notes— the red and blue theme, the combo of classic and creative I wanted, and a good visual sampling of the types of recipes you’ll find inside! ^.^

I love seeing all the pieces come together. It’s starting to look like a real book now!
More updates as things progress! 😀

    This is so exciting! I can’t wait until this is out! The world needs this cookbook. ^ ^

    • Thank you so much! When I submitted my manuscript, I was like “And now I can finally focus on keeping up with my blog…like replying to comments!”. Lol which as you can see is going swimmingly. I used to have a nice system for keeping up with things, but I had to set it aside for the final round of cookbook edits. Hopefully I’ll be back in the habit soon!
